Example of report impacted: Missing Time Report, Timesheet Detail
This is reported as DE57138 and is resolved in 220.127.116.11 (Patch 2).
DE57138: PRJ_BLB_SLICES table data needs to be regenerated
Release : 15.8.1
Component : CA PPM SAAS APPLICATION
Our Infrastructure and Engineering team identified this 2-part issue:
1. The database connection pooling issue is stabilized where it affected the job scheduler, particularly the Time Slicing job, as this job runs frequently and is most affected.
2. There is an identified portion of Time Slicing code that was revised to address the condition above, so that a complete manual reslice is not needed.
If the issue does happen before the release containing the fix is applied, reslice the affected time slice ids in batches with the following instructions.
Refer to the highlighted time slices which are commonly used to populate reports.
It is highly recommended to pause the Time Slicing ahead of any upgrade or maintenance schedule.
